    Pros

    - Employees generally treat each other with respect. You will make lifelong friends here. Culture is quite fun if you can fit in - Opportunity to work overseas through expatriate/ mobility programs - Development opportunities, although you need to perform well in your role to access these opportunities. If you are average/ below average, opportunities are limited - Company is committed to ethics and sustainability - Fringe benefits like free products and staff price

    Cons

    - Middle management is a bit weak, most people seem to be promoted based on duration in the company - Lack of empathy from management and HR - Salary in operations is not on par with other FMCG companies - Long hours and weak IT systems. A lot of administrative work that may not exist in other companies due to the weak systems - High turnover rates, which leads to the same problems and issues arising every year. Job gets repetitive after a while
